Registration Travel & Parking Eating on campus Lost & found


Registration is required for all who plan to participate. Space is limited; registration will close when we reach capacity.

All school groups and those arriving by school/chartered bus are required to wear event wristbands. These will be mailed to the school address provided in your registration in advance of the event.

Travel and parking

Engineering Discovery Days exhibits are located near Loew Hall on the University of Washington Seattle campus. To help you find your way, download a printable campus map.

See UW Commuter Services for transportation information, including bus service, light rail service, directions, and parking details. Parking information for school buses will be provided closer to the event date.


The fee for car parking is $6.75 (Visa/Mastercard only). Cars can park in the E-1 or E-18 parking lot. If you enter the lot at the north end (E-1), pay at the gate-arms. If you enter the lot at the south end (E-18), use the Digital Pay machine located on the east side of the lot near the soccer stadium. You will need to provide your license plate number when paying at the machine. You can also pay by phone. See the campus map and driving directions for more information. 

Look for the welcome booth in the parking lot, as well as one outside of Loew Hall on campus. Please stop by and pick up a program. The program lists the exhibits and locations, and also includes a map.

Bus parking

Bus parking is for registered buses only. ​You will receive specific instructions closer to the event; please drop off and park according to your assignment unless otherwise pre-arranged. Bus parking is free.

If you are NOT parking on campus, the drop-off and pick-up location for buses is the E-18 parking lot; please view the parking map for directions. Although this is the same location as bus parking, you may not park your bus if you did not register your bus during Discovery Days registration.

Disability parking

If you need special arrangements, please contact UW Transportation Services at 206-616-8710 or

Eating on campus

You are encouraged to bring your own picnic or sack lunch and enjoy plenty of indoor and outdoor eating spots.

Food is available for purchase at several locations, although the lines are often long.

Lost & found

Any items found by or turned in to Discovery Days volunteers will be brought to the Husky Union Building (HUB) Lost & Found at the front desk of the HUB. Please check there if you have lost something.
